Can we do a "Soft Save" in Salesforce?

Hi All,
I came across a scenario that I noticed one class was not updated by a developer by checking the class's modified date and name.
Then I was told he did "Soft Save". I asked what is "soft save". He said " A "soft save" is simply the action of clicking edit, then clicking save (without making changes), hence the change in the last modified date."

I really cannot do "soft save" on my own. I always get time modifed if using his method.

Did somebody know "soft save" in salesforce?

There is no such feature on force.com. If you click on Save it will update last modified date.

You can use eclipse IDE in Offline mode. In this way code will saved locally when you click on Save.

When you want to save final copy you can click on Save to server.
